Hey, you. I’m happy to announce that World Garri Day is happening, and I’m making sure Zikoko leads by example and gives us a day off.

In other breaking news, it’s officially one day to Game of Votes. It’s the newsletter designed to help you navigate the Nigeria that’s apparently been fashioned against you. Click the image to subscribe and share with those on your blocked list (because they need to hear this gospel too).

The Inside Gist: We Didn’t Need Phones, We Had Love


Hii Itohan. I’m curious, whose parents did you hijack for this story?

LMAO. They’re actually my partner’s parents, and they’re the absolute cutest.

Ohh okay. But I’m still trying to wrap my head around how they managed long-distance in a no-phones era.


Do you get?! The only reason long-distance relationships make sense is because of all the ways we can communicate now. Imagine doing lockdown without phones?

I can’t even imagine it. I have a feeling you were also “God when-ing” during this interview.


Yes, I was. And it was a different type of “God when”. They’ve been together for 23 years, but they still sound so in love with each other. My heart was tight.

The ultimate “God when”.
